Time to resurrect this from the dead, 7 years....
I gave up on inkscape and went with via google sheets. Turns out it's easier to use blocks than a grid on a canvas.

I got into the rabbit hole about it, and really couldn't only just do ThinkPads. There's quite a bit of models sharing the same MTM with ThinkPads and they were PS/2 or PS/55 variants. Then I got into a cesspool about the PS/55 machines, a few POS touch terminals IBM made and then the PowerPC gaming consoles, had to put those in as well.
I got the bright idea of matching the model w/ links to the PSREF, and on some machines, I couldn't really find out when they were actually removed from the market, as they'll come back for sale again months later.

Unfortunately, I didn't think of writing down on a separate page the start and end dates... so I have to look at the timeline and write each one on the machines I missed. I'm not sure how many ThinkPad models are on here, I am thinking maybe 500? I may have goofed up on the early R series machines, and I didn't really make separate lines for each MTM or screen body type, though I did on some P variants on the T Series.

I think I started this in 2019, for now it is "complete" as of July 2022, I think I have most of the US and EMEA models on here, whatever was on the PSREFs are here, and a few Think Tablets. Doubtful if I'll do one for ThinkBooks, or other machines. Feel free making your own,

IIRC, the T16 with Intel was released APR22, and the AMD version JUN22. You have them listed about a year earlier than they were actually released.
